Text description equipped through the architects. The two current constructions must shape a visible and technical unit. This is completed with the thermal façade renovation and the revision of the roof floor, as so-called “5th facade”. The newly created opening on the northeast nook serves as an front state of affairs and on the identical time the Tiwag development is accessed through a ramp for disabled folks. The measures bind the development alongside the northeast aspect to the city area. The south-facing bay window at the development is transferred to the brand new development envelope and produced with the opposite constant issues of the present crystalline look.
The current „Spielmann mosaics” on the bay window and his glass mosaic home windows throughout the lobby are received and built-in into the design thought. By reworking the potential of supply has been stepped forward with a brand new Elevator. AAs a part of the brand new courtyard design a roofed bicycle stand used to be constructed. He has an built-in charging station for electrical cars.
At the Rooftop new premises for roughly 30 jobs have been created. The current roof used to be canceled. The new most sensible flooring is designed as a light-weight building from wood fabrics (CLT ceilings and partitions, Glulam beams) and metal columns. The inside used to be performed in dry building and with movable walls – to procure versatile places of work. For new building, the bottom flooring and attic used to be provided with a cooling and air flow device. The last rooms have been tailored with airconditioners.
The whole façade surfaces and the roof surfaces above the fifth flooring have been thermally rehabilitated. On the east and north aspect a thermal insulation device is put in. On the west aspect a insulated ventilated steel façade (Alucobond) is isnatellded. The current home windows have been changed with “aluminum clad wooden” home windows with up to the moment thermal coverage.
On all home windows automated sunglasses have been fastened. Place aspect, all of the major development used to be constructed over or over-molded with a metal and glass facade. The new outer shell is composed of point-fixed laminated protection glass on a metal substructure. This shell is fastened as much as 2.15 m in entrance of the primary facade. In order to verify the vital air circulate within the facade, the glass panels have been fastened with open joints.
This measure does now not routinely boot of solar coverage even on windy, sunny days (Fönsturm). To save you the unfold of smoke and hearth, the façade used to be divided into 3 vertical and 3 horizontal sections. The new “roof facade” serves each as a display for house automation programs at the flat roof of the development alternatively, it operates as a substructure for photovoltaic cells. The glass facade paperwork the specified uniform look of all of the major development. Roof buildings and raise engine rooms are optically built-in the roof facade.
